Amazon and eBay, Groupon deals and Twitter. All and more will be discussed in what promises to be a lively panel debate at the upcoming PCR Retail Boot Camp.
Entitled 'Online Selling: Threat or Opportunity?', this panel session will look at the thorny issue of internet trading and cover the following areas:-
* Online – Retail’s beacon of hope or bête noire?
* Amazon & eBay – friend or foe?
* Harnessing social media
* Groupon and other daily deal services
The panel will include Mark Banfield (Autotask), Shane Redding (Cyance), Steven Lightfoot (Pudsey Computers) and Phil Meacham (Synaxon) and will be chaired by Richard Tubb (IT business consultant and chair of the CompTIA Channel Community).
PCR Retail Boot Camp is an exciting new conference and expo for the UK PC and IT channel, taking place on Wednesday May 2nd at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London. It is free for retailers to attend and will provide a day of conference sessions, expo showcases and networking – all designed to help dealers improve their business.

Meanwhile, an after-show party, sponsored by VIP, will provide networking opportunities to round off the day's events.
